What’s a more suiting gift for the man in your life this holiday season than a complex red wine crafted by the ultimate guys’ guy?
Mike Martini, winemaker for Louis M. Martini Winery, is known to ride his Harley through his Napa Valley vineyards, and he plays guitar in Private Reserve (a band with other winemakers as its members).
In addition to his bike-riding and guitar-playing, however, Mike makes some impressive – and masculine – wines, including the gift-worthy 2009 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
· Louis M. Martini 2009 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine would appeal to any man or woman who he chooses to share with because it has flavors of red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit with an underlying dry creek dustiness.
· Louis M. Martini 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: This wine is really made for the manly man because it features intense aromas of ripe cherry, cedar, and pipe tobacco. Concentrated flavors of ripe plums and dark bing cherries marry perfectly with the oak nuances, imparting notes of brown spice and vanilla. This is a well structured wine that is balanced with firm, velvety tannins which culminate in a long, elegant finish with hints of tobacco, dried herbs and fruit.
Buy It: You can purchase the Louis M. Martini 2009 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon for a SRP of $18 and the Louis M. Martini 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon for a SRP of $30.
